Depends on the age and height of the kid but my only regret when getting my first horse is he's a bit small. And I think most peoples and children's first horses will be forever horses so best not get a forever horse they could outgrown. As you'll have to have two then 😂😊
Ponies! They are the most adorable and annoying thing to a child, they learn how to ride and above all they learn gold lessons with ponies. Like failing is inevitable, love above a good or a bad day, to deal with deception, with amazing moments, and above all never to quite because you have a tiny little friend
Drafts. Many drafts are very relaxed and laid back and have never met a spooky one and the child will learn how to sit the gaits a lot easier as well as drafts are actually pretty flowy and smooth when ridden I love them.
